GENERAL INFORMATION 

OBJECT OF THE SUMMER SESSION 

The Summer Session is intended to provide instruction for regular 
students of this and other colleges and universities and for those en- 
gaged during the winter in teaching. 

LOCATION 

The location of Shaw University is especially convenient, situated 
practically in the heart of the Capital City. No car or cab fares will be 
necessary to visit the shopping district, State Department of Education, 
State Museum, State Library, Hall of History, and other places of 
educational interest. An exceedingly bracing and healthful climate 
makes this city an ideal place for residence and study. 

FACULTY 

The faculty for the Summer Session will be composed primarily of 
the regular members of the Shaw University faculty, together with 
additional specialists in the field of education. 

LIBRARY 

A well-equipped and attractive library, consisting of approximately 
24,362 books, is located in Tyler Hall. It is supervised by a competent 
librarian who aids the students in their reference work and guides 
them in their general reading. Magazines and daily and weekly news- 
papers provide means for the information of students on current 
events. It is the aim of the Administration to make the library a place of 
great usefulness in the education of the students in technical knowledge 
and general culture. 

OBSERVATION AND DIRECTED TEACHING FACILITIES 

Local conditions make it impossible for the University to offer obser- 
vation and directed teaching facilities during the summer. 

DORMITORY FACILITIES 

Persons desiring dormitory accommodations during the Summer 
School should indicate that fact to the Registrar, not later than May 31 ; 
send key deposit of $2.00 with application prior to that date, making 
money-order payable to Shaw University. The University has adequate 
housing for those who desire to live on the campus. The women students 
are under the supervision of the Dean of Women who is assisted by 
dormitory hostesses, and the men students are under the supervision of 
the Dean of Men and assistants. 



Shaw University Bulletin 5 

RECREATION 

Tennis, croquet, softball, and sightseeing tours are among the forms 
of recreation provided by the University. 

In addition, several social events are held for the students and 
faculty of the Summer School. 

TEACHERS EMPLOYMENT BUREAU 

The Bureau has secured each year a large number of teaching and 
administrative positions for graduates and former students. It exists 
for the double purpose of supplying the needs of school officials over 
the State and of helping students and former students to find teaching 
and administrative positions for which they are best suited. 

ASSEMBLY 

Assembly exercises are held in Greenleaf Memorial Hall periodically 
during the session. All students are expected to attend these exercises. 
Special addresses are arranged and interesting recitals presented. 

REGISTRATION 

Teachers are requested to bring their certificates, credit slips from 
summer schools previously attended, diplomas or other evidences of 
training. These will be needed for registration the first day. No student 
should expect to enter and receive credit after Friday, June 8. 

ADMISSION 

Written application should be made and forwarded in advance. A 
transcript signed by the president or principal of the school attended, 
containing a full record of the subjects pursued by the student with 
the time devoted to each, and his standing in the same, should be sent 
to the Registrar of the University before the student registers. Appli- 
cation blanks will be furnished on request and should be filled out and 
returned promptly. 

Courses are organized to serve the needs of the following persons: 

( a ) High school graduates 

(b) College students 

( c ) College graduates interested in renewing certificates 

( d ) Holders of any of the following certificates :

WORKSHOP-SEMINAR FOR PRINCIPALS, 
SUPERVISORS AND TEACHERS 

Because of the success of the workshop-seminar of other years, plans 
are being made to provide a workshop-seminar for teachers, principals, 
and supervisors. The workshop-seminar is designed to give its members 
an opportunity to clarify their thinking on problems of educational 
philosophy, and to give them assistance in denning educational objec- 
tives. Each member will be given a chance to work on problems which 
are encountered in his particular school situation. Those who bring 
similar problems will be encouraged to work in small, informal groups. 
In addition, they will have easy access to the services of a group of 
sympathetic and competent workshop specialists. 

Those who attend will be given credit for six semester hours. These 
hours will fulfill the state's requirement for certificate renewal, and, at 
the same time, will satisfy a requirement in reading or methods for 
those who may be changing a high school certificate to a primary or 
grammar grade A. 

Those interested in the development of reading programs for their 
schools will be given opportunities to work in this area. Members of 
our staff, persons from the State Department of Public Instruction, 
and competent workshop consultants from colleges and universities in 
this section will be available for special assistance. 

Registration for workshop will begin June 6. Special fee of $6.00 in 
addition to regular charges. 

For further information, please feel free to communicate with the 
Director of Summer School.

Dr. Grady Davis, Director 

TWO WEEKS: Beginning Monday, June 11, and ending Friday, June 
22, 1956 

Shaw University is pleased to offer this summer a two weeks' study 
course for ministers who desire to improve themselves in literary back- 
ground and in Bible study. These are not courses for college credit, but 
are designed for ministers who do not have the credits necessary for 
college admission. 

The classes will meet from Monday to Friday of each week so that 
ministers may return to their church fields if desired. The fees will be 
$10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for those who 
bring their sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will be $12.00 
per week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons not living 
in the dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee of $1.00 will 
be paid by each student for materials to be used in the handicrafts

22, 1956 

This summer Shaw University continues a summer study program 
for Missionary Women as another phase of the program of the Mis- 
sionary Training Department. The work will be so organized that over 
a period of years, women who have completed the total program will 
receive a certificate. These are not the courses which are to be taken 
by the students in the college working for the A. B. degree with a major 
in Religious Education, but are designed for women who are already in 
the missionary program in their churches, or wish to prepare them- 
selves for the improvement of such activities. 

Classes meet Monday to Friday of each week so that the Missionary 
Workers may return home each weekend, if desired. The fees will be 
$10.00 a week including course fees, room and board for those who 
bring their sheets, pillow cases, and towels. The charges will be $12.00 
a week for those who do not bring their linen. Persons not living in the 
dormitories will pay $4.50 a week. A laboratory fee of $1.00 will be paid 
by each student for materials to be used in the handicrafts course.
